Mass illegal immigration has been the single greatest impediment to black advancement in this country over the past 25 years. Blacks, in particular, have lost economic opportunities, seen their kids’ schools flooded with non-English speaking students, and felt the socio-economic damage of illegal immigration more acutely than any other group.
Poll data has suggested that many blacks are deeply concerned about illegal immigration-and loose immigration policy in general. As I have previously suggested, the black political leadership appears exceptionally out of touch with its constituency.
If movements like this have any substantial success, it will be a great victory for the immigration restriction movement—and I think African-Americans as a whole.
